If a Type 1 font is no longer availabe for use in InDesign (Frutiger), can I purchase it directly from the foundry and add it to my fonts? Or is is still a Type 1 and no longer usable with Adobe?
Hi @barryb83291575 ,
Type 1 fonts are not supported in most browsers and operating systems, and Adobe is moving forward with support and more robust technical possibilities of OpenType format fonts.If you have purchased Type 1 fonts not owned by Adobe should contact the font foundry that published the font(s) to learn whether an upgrade path to the OpenType format is available.
You could refer the below article link for more detailed options:
Please let me know if this helps.
Thanks, Neelam. That answers my question.
